Malaysian women 16th most stressed, study shows

NEW YORK, July 18 (Bernama) -- Malaysian women rank 16th most stressed women in the world, according to a recent study on the stress levels which women worldwide are subjected to.

Indian women rank as the world¡zs most stressed women, says the study, prepared by the information and media company, Nielsen.

The study shows that women in India live and work under considerable time pressure.

Indian women are the most stressed (87 per cent), the study shows, closely followed by Mexican (74 per cent) and Russian women (69 per cent). In the developed countries, the stress level is the highest for women in Spain (66 per cent), France (65 per cent) and Italy (64 per cent).

Malaysian women (44 per cent) rank 16th in the list while women in Thailand (45 per cent) share the 15th spot with South Korea (45 per cent). Japanese women (52 per cent) rank 12th while mainland Chinese women (51 per cent) rank 13th.

The study, which researched the buying and other social behavioural patterns of women in 21 developing and emerging economies of the world, reveals that women all over the world feel stressed out, with women in the so-called emerging countries facing greater stress than women in the developed countries.

According to India’s “Economic Times”, the greater stress levels of women in the newly industrialised countries can be attributed to the fact that in recent years, for example, in India, the corporate sector and the jobs have developed at an extremely fast pace whereas the society has stagnated with its traditional role patterns.
